Instruction book

Hi all,

I bought recently this instruction book that has the name and unit of the user.

I guess the number mentioned 2576142 is the C number. Just in case the new owner of 2576142 is still around.


Re: Instruction book

I'm quite sure that is his army number. As in "Name, Rank and Number" Ron

Indeed, Ron, from the Royal Corps of Signals block 2303001 - 2604000 so someone who joined up prior to the processing of new recruits via the General Service Corps.

47th Infantry Division had been intended to go to France in 1940 but in fact spent their whole time on Home Defence duties before being disbanded in 1944.

Re: Instruction book

If the numbers would mean the same as the number my uncle had then it reads : 25 july 1906 nr.142
